Tbh I always want more kek then depression but a great man said "what's makes us laughs makes us cry".

I see… I guess I really need to replan this SCP a lot… Featuring less known SCPs is cool though but I guess I will have to do a bit more research before I could actually start writing the document. But the 5k contest submission deadline is near. It would probably be impossible for me to finish it before the deadline. I think I'll give up joining the contest but I will still continue this though. And I will still need a lot of help from you guys.

But before replanning, I still have two questions though:
1. Since you haven't talked about it, what are your opinions on the document/dimension thing? Do you think they are redundant?
2. For the characters, do you think it's only redundant if I continue to include him? Do you think him joining the event still not work?

Re: My SCP-5000 idea by kanekirikanekiri, 17 Jan 2020 13:25

The mystery here is the folk legend that affect the fishermen, and the Foundation wants to solve that by investigating the latest appearance (It is rather rare, happening once per century, but leaves enough of a mark on affected regions.) The investigation takes months due to the scope.

The fisherman is traced back with the identification of vintas similar to his, and is made much more a target due to slightly low Hume levels made by the Foundation. It is then implied that his brother, also a fisherman, is the cause.

The rabbits and the cats exist mainly because these were the favorite animals of the fishermen, and the vinta phenomenon bases itself off the minds that it afflicts.

The brother is what we consider as mediocre, but is mainly wrecked with guilt due to high family expectations, and the fact that the glory he so desires only appears with his brother (he's a Korean war deserter). Also, as a fisherman, he then usually goes back home with a weak catch, which earns him the mockery of his fellow fishermen. Due to this, he does a bunch of shenanigans in the community, tainting the family name.

He then mellows out, and aims to atone. Due to how limited his mind is, he can only try to think of a simple way to help people (and fishermen) ; try to build something useful for them. Hence the rafts, but sadly, they don't hold up to standards. He then flees the community.

His brother, meanwhile, is also wracked with guilt due to 'high and mighty' way he dealt with the brother. He, annoyed at his brother, tried to help his brother in a different way after the normal 'comfort' way was lost ' ; he also jeered at and threatened to kick him out, thus isolating him. When the brother flees, he too escapes, and finds out later1 that his brother became deluded. He tries to destroy this delusion (due to the vintas ,he represents the 'cats') by chasing him, trying to make him come back, and try forgive him.

As it turns out, this story is only half-true, the person the Foundation is talking to is the 'failure' brother (they were thinking it was actually the other one due to his connection to the cat vintas, which destroy stuff). He actually took over his brother's role, since he was trying to turn his life around. However, he had become senile, and mistook the memories of his brother as his own.

Meanwhile, his brother has been in the town he is the whole time as a sort of politician ; trying to be inconspicuous he had been helping him out by giving fishermen new boats and nets, and wishing him a lot of harvest to further his name (which is then somewhat solved by the phenomenon).

The brother dies, leaving the politician son still wrecked with guilt. What would have happen if they met once more is a mystery for him, and he never got around to formally apologizing.

Yea, it's mainly about forgiveness, but will also incorporate

This is a seemingly normal paper cup taken from a branch of (idk generic coffee chain???). However any liquid placed inside will look, smell and taste like an actual tea, no matter the liquid.

plaTEAbo effect (idea) by GuiLuiGuiLui, 17 Jan 2020 13:18

I think that these images could work for this article but you have to ask the creator of the article or a staff member. I personally believe that the 1st and 3rd image would be the best images that can look like SCP-217 because the 1st one looks like a metal chain, like you said. And the way the image titled "another petri dish" was taken by an angle to where the center of the petri dish looks somewhat like part of SCP-217.

It is, and a lot of these answers are immensely unhelpful due to their lack of any mention of the whole "no canon" aspect of the Foundation.

I strongly recommend that you read Nagiros' comment, as the answers to your questions are more developed and correct in that one.

Isn’t this basically Andrew swanns proposal? This clearly has more to give but still.

Edit: my bad you seem to be aware of this seeing as you reference it

Hi
I was thinking of writing a new SCP. It is basically a mysterious cloaked figure that has strange symbols on his body but whenever you look at his face a strange greyness starts spreading over your body slowly starting from your eyes. You would first have a smile on your face and after a while it turns into a frown as if the SCP was showing you your memories from best to worst and slowly consume your soul. When you are totally consumed by the greyness you would start floating with a forlorn look on your face. If any organic matter came into contact with any other infected organic matter they would exhibit similar simptons.
Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.

New SCP Idea by RedbrickwhaleRedbrickwhale, 17 Jan 2020 13:11

isin't it classified as a joke skip?(scp) because of the -J at the end?

Re: Questions from a newbie by fellflyerfellflyer, 17 Jan 2020 13:03

This is why people are turning against kaktus

This is pretty inappropriate and doesn't have anything to do with the content of the article.

by djkaktusdjkaktus, 17 Jan 2020 12:59

Cringe. This deserves to be a -j. This is why people are turning against kaktus

First SCP-1875 and then this… Both wonderfully horrific, and yet you did it the hard way, without jump scares or gory pictures that bring physiological discomfort.

by derhamderham, 17 Jan 2020 12:51

Sorry. It was intended as a compliment. English isn't my first language. Doesn't excuse it but might explain it.

by DrJohannesDrJohannes, 17 Jan 2020 12:46

I'm sorry you're taking it that way.

That's arguably more condescending than what you said before. If you're going to apologize, do it in a way that doesn't put the responsibility on the other person for "not getting it".

by NagirosNagiros, 17 Jan 2020 12:39

Deliciously lolFoundation. I definitely wouldn't want to see Trump's face on the SCP-5000 slot, so no vote for now, but I do think there's a place in the mainlist for something like this.

by Quadruple StuffedQuadruple Stuffed, 17 Jan 2020 12:36

This isn't meant to be condescending. I'm sorry you're taking it that way.

by DrJohannesDrJohannes, 17 Jan 2020 12:19

I loved Ouroboros and I loved 4444 but this… it feels like you've taken 4444 and turned everything up to 11, which is not always a good thing. I'm going to have to downvote because I think it's just a bit too silly for a mainlist article, but if this becomes a -J I will immediately change to upvote, and laud it as the greatest -J to ever exist.

Make the characters a bit more believable, and less like caricatures from a Saturday morning TV show and clean up the dry historical references a bit (They're good for context but I can't read them without zoning out), and I can see myself changing to at least a novote, but the idea of the USSC being filled with senile wizards is something I can't ever see myself upvoting

Credit where it's due, you tell a good, character-driven story with amusing characters. It just doesn't translate into an SCP document.

I really want to love this by badgerbanebadgerbane, 17 Jan 2020 12:19

Most of this is fine, but

Come on, you're better than this.

Please don't condescend to me like this.

I think we managed to work around that issue now.
